Be your own Hero

Welcome to The Maryland Defenders offical website. We are an alliance of heroes, doing our part to help make the world a better place for all living creatures.Our primary focus is on animal rights, promoting responsible pet ownership, and conservation of the environment. We do this by being active in our community - volunteering, fund raising, educating.


The Maryland Defenders was began by members of The Skiffytown League of Heroes, a not-for-profit organization. Skiffytown is spread across the United States with regional hero affiliations active within their own communities.


This homepage will serve as our base of operations, sharing information about animals in need and local events benefitting various charities.We encourage everyone to summon their inner hero and join us. Visit our forum for information on how you can help in your area.



                          DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES


Humankind has not woven the web of life.

We are but one thread within it. Every action upon

 our little string resonates outward to affect the

rest of the web, for good or for ill. Like a pebble

 on the water, the ripples go forth and grow in

size as they gather strength. So can an act of

 kindness change someone. That act of kindness

 then passes forward, growing in size,

spreading to all in its path.


All living creatures deserve this kindness.

There are many lives, human and otherwise,

who have been forgotten. Perhaps they have

 come to believe that this kindness has

passed them by and will not come again.


We, the founding members of the Maryland Defenders,

recognize that our time on this Earth

is short. Our lives slip away, moment by moment,

but there is still time to seize that

one last fragile moment, to choose something better,

to make a difference.

That is exactly what we have chosen to do.
